Deuxième volume — Répertoire des manuscrits grecs enluminés (XIe—XIIe siècles), Presses universitaires «St. Clément d'Ohrid», 2022, 454 pages.
The edition is a result of nearly 50 years of research by the author of the largest collection of Greek manuscripts preserved on the territory of Bulgaria, spanning the chronological range from the 9th to the 19th century. Of the over 450 Greek manuscripts, half of them are from the 9th-14th century period. From them, the author has selected 86 in view of the peculiarities of their decoration.
Each volume contains a preface outlining the peculiarities of the different types and styles in the decoration of the respective period; annotations to each manuscript, with an emphasis on the decoration and illustrations and its location within a wide geographical area, covering both the production of the Constantinople workshops and those of Mainland Greece, as well as production in the eastern and western Byzantine provinces. Each manuscript is also represented by color illustrations.
